“You’re going down.” I met my competitor’s gaze and stared intently into his eyes. My fierce expression of determination would surely intimidate any opponent. There was no material gain or prize on the line. It was all for the triumph of succeeding, the glory of winning, and the honor of being declared the champion. Losing was not an option. After carefully studying my surroundings, I was adamant that I would be victorious at a round of miniature golf at Bermuda Fun Golf.

Alright, so maybe I’m being a little bit dramatic. But, Bermuda Fun Golf isn’t any typical mini golf course. After all, it’s the best mini golf in the world, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. You won’t see any windmills here. While you still play with putters, each of the eighteen holes is modeled after a famous one from either Bermuda, the United States, or Scotland. You will see small scale versions of holes from Pebble Beach, Augusta, Glen Eagles, and St. Andrews. Watch out, as you’ll be faced with sand traps, hazards, and ponds on your journey.
Awesome Mini Golf Modeled After Famous Courses
You’ll find Bermuda Fun Golf right on the waterfront at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Sandys Parish. It only makes sense that the best mini golf course in the world comes with an epic view of the ocean. You can also catch a glimpse of the fortification walls that overlook the sea.
Bermuda Fun Golf was designed by Hogan Lindgren who designed similar golf courses in Denmark and Sweden. While these may be the best mini golf courses in the world, Lindgren thinks that this one in Bermuda is the top one yet. It was two years in the making, and the final result was worth the wait. Lindgren based this putt putt course on the holes from real golf courses around the world: six from Bermuda, six from the USA, and six from Scotland.

Our Experiences at the Best Mini Golf in the World
This fun mini golf course was unlike any that we’ve played before. It’s more difficult than it looks! While the bunkers weren’t actually filled with sand, these spots differed from the regular astro turf on the green. When your golf ball ended up in one of these hazards, it was tougher to hit it out of there.
I also had the tendency to hit the golf ball too hard, which sent it flying into the rough. Some of the holes had more difficult bunkers where you would be forced to hit the ball backwards in order to get it back on the green. While it was definitely challenging, I did manage to get a hole-in-one at one point during the game.
After we played through all 18 holes, we tallied up the scores. Though I was playing really well in the first half, Justin gained momentum later in the game as my golf ball seemed to keep landing in those nasty sand traps. He ended up winning, but only by three. It was a really good game and the attraction surely lived up to its name – we had tons of fun!
